Squaw Valley Fights Contaminated Water Supply

In the course of routine testing, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows discovered the presence of E. coli and coliform bacteria in the water supply at Squaw Valley’s upper mountain. This contamination occurred after heavy storms hit the area, affecting a recently upgraded water supply system. They immediately contacted the Placer County Department of Environmental Health to report the issue.


Liesl Kenney, who represents Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, insists that only one water system was affected. The contaminated water was not given to the public and no health issues have been reported. He further states that they have consulted with water safety experts to fix the problem.


Since the discovery, the water has been continuously treated to combat the bacteria. Three of the wells that provide water to the area now show no signs of E. coli and significantly lowered levels of coliform bacteria. The fourth well used in the upper mountain area is still being aggressively treated.


According to Kenney, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows is committed to fixing the water issue and protecting their guests. Until the water is safe to drink, upper mountain restaurants will remain closed. The slopes are open, though skiers are limited to bottled water only, which Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows is providing for free. Pre-packaged food is also available.


To keep guests informed of the problem, notices have been posted. Other than the water issue, the full facilities and amenities are open as usual to guests. Squaw Valley’s pristine slopes are still safe to ski, and the beauty of the upper mountain area in Lake Tahoe remains unchanged.
